    I started with Shields UP back 15-20 years ago when I was still using Windows. It attacks from the outside, rather than testing from inside. Yes, there are thousands of ports, but the vast majority are in the first 1024. You can read the philosophy at Shields Up for why the only test the first 1024. But you can also test any port you want manual as well.

    And port scan in Network Utility claims to do the same thing, but I wonder if it can scan its own ports?

    I tried Little Snitch. Got rid of it after bout 10 minutes. Too annoying and I didn't want to have to customize it to make it work. It reported EVERY STINKING PACKET!
